Coopersville Farm Museum - Coopersville: Four Museum Tickets or Two Friday-Night Line-Dancing Tickets at the Coopersville Farm Museum

Line dancing's linear form is simpler than square dancing but more complicated than hexadecimal dancing. Experience this and other rural truisms firsthand with today's Groupon to the Coopersville Farm Museum. Choose between the following options:

  • For $5, you get two tickets to a Friday-night line dance (up to a $10 value). Line dancing takes place every Friday night October 14–November 25 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
  • For $8, you get four tickets to the Coopersville Farm Museum (up to a $16 value). The museum is open Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

Coopersville Farm Museum curates mementos of rural life, preserving homespun memories inside 12,000 square feet of agricultural exhibits, farm tools, and tractor memorabilia. Visitors can peruse the vivid patterns of the museum's quilt collection or gawk at the vintage Eclipse windmill's brightly painted fin. Curious tykes can hop atop the various tractors on display and imagine they're hard at work on the farmland or accidentally plowing through a hockey arena. Until October 14, guests can peruse Pamela Alderman's Art of Rural Life gallery, which features calming watercolor beachside scenes. The gift shop gives visitors a chance to purchase shirt-saving aprons and quilted souvenirs. Toe-tapping tutor Helen Walters leads Friday-night line-dancing events, which kick off with instruction from 7:00–8:30 p.m. followed by open boot scooting from 8:30–9:00 p.m.

Coopersville Farm Museum and Event Center

As the sun dips below Coopersville Farm Museum and Event Center’s grain silo, local musicians gather in the high-ceilinged hall against the backdrop of patchwork quilts and antique farm tools. They sing gospel, country, and folk songs that have been passed down for generations. Events such as these are one facet of the museum’s mission to honor and uphold rural traditions. In addition to the monthly jam sessions, the 12,000-square-foot facility hosts quilting circles, line dancing, and other skill-swapping events. Curators spotlight the region’s agrarian past by recruiting antique-farming tools and folk art and freeing hopelessly lost scarecrows from corn mazes. In addition to shining a light on the region’s past, the museum strives to support current culture makers; The hall serves as a gallery space for local artists, and during the youth-led Kids’ Day local teens teach tykes creative skills.

We absolutely loved the Farm Museum. The diverse, rich farm history displays were engaging and the quilts were gorgeous. My 3 kids enjoyed the play area and are already asking when we get to come back. The attendant was exceptional, turning on the model railway and taking the bunnies out of their pen so the kids could pet them. They even got goodie bags to take home! It was a 10. :)

The museum is small, but has a lot of neat stuff. It seems to have a bit of something for everyone, including kids. Our kids (12 & 15) had a great time exploring all the different exhibits.
